The Committee on Health is holding an in-camera discussion with the social cluster of Committees to discuss non-release of funds to the National Health Insurance Authority.

Committees that are to appear before the Committee for discussion are the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, the National Health Insurance Authority and the Controller and Accountant General Department.

The initial public hearing of the Committee’s meeting turns up to be an in-camera discussion after which the chairman of the Committee Dr. Nana Ayew Afriye assured the media they would be briefed after their discussion.

As to what is informing the sudden turn around, the chairman of the Committee told journalists this is a standard practice; and apart from the Appointment Committee of Ghana’s Parliament they are a Committee that had held public hearing.

Ranking of the Committee Kwabena Minta Akando had a different view of the chairman and pointed out that since this is a public institution there is nothing to hide.
